Large cylindrical air filter:
5" Diameter x 7" Tall cylindrical air filter with 3 1/2" diameter opening and full velocity stack directs 74% more air than stock air box to the throttle body for better throttle response and performance. This washable/reuseable 5-layer progressively finer mesh cotton gauze oiled media air filter provides maximum airflow for increased horsepower and torque.
Duo-Purpose, One-Piece Heat Shield:
The air filter sits atop a one-piece, black powder-coated 18-gauge heat shield that directs cool air from grille over the engine while blocking out horsepower-robbing engine heat. Cooler air charge results in more horsepower and torque.
Mandrel-Bent Intake Tube:
Constant 3" diameter, mandrel-bent intake tube directs unhindered air from the air filter to throttle body for improved performance. This tube is powder-coated, wrinkle-black to minimize heat transfer.
Billet aluminum adaptor for factory smog pump and crankcase fitting is provided for easy installation. All clamps, couplings, and hardware are included for hassle-free installation. This is a direct bolt-on kit that requires no cutting or drilling on OEM parts.

- MUST HAVE! AMAZING ENGINE SOUND
- Fits in the engine bay like a dream with no trouble whatsoever getting it installed. It looks SWEEET and it makes your engine noise sound absolutely amazing!!!! Not to mention, it improved my highway gas mileage a bit but my city gas mileage is yet to be determined because I'm too busy standing on my throttle listening to this newborn roar that the aFe cold air intake brought. I can notice a slight increase in power also which is not bad to have either. This is a MUST HAVE if you want to play with you engine a little bit and love a great engine sound.
